On March 31 2009, a bootleg copy of the film was leaked online. The copy had no watermark, unfinished/alternate VFX and a different font for the credits; but by the time the film officially released in theatres on 2009 (weeks later), it had been downloaded about 4.5 million times. Roger Friedman, a reporter for Fox News, wrote an adverse review of the film based on the leaked copy - he even described how easy it was to find and download the film. His review was immediately removed and he got fired. See more »
When Wolverine goes to Las Vegas, he clearly drives there and approaches from the outskirts of the city, passing by a "Welcome to fabulous Las Vegas" sign. There are three of these signs - one on the Boulder Strip, one on the Las Vegas Strip, and an alternate "welcome to downtown Las Vegas" one on the north end of the strip. There is not one on the outskirts of the city as shown in the film. See more »

Great action, sex appeal, a powerful and emotional script, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? See This Gem
The first real blockbuster of 2009 and deservingly so. It's exciting and an all-around entertaining comic book adaptation and I doubt anything will be better this year. Everyone involved in the production should be proud to know that their movie can stand toe-to-toe with the likes of anything else that summer 2009 has and can throw at them. Star power, sex appeal, a powerful and emotional script, and a great plot make this one memorable flick.
Real fans (not those whinny online imposters who can't let go of their own warped preconceptions) can breath a sigh of relief because X-Men Origins: Wolverine takes the X-Men franchise films to the next level. There are plenty of action scenes that you have to see to believe! This movie was just shear fun. I love it. What are you waiting for?
